$2 Bar Stools Plus Junk Shopping And Auction buys

It’s been a while since I posted about my junk shopping trips and auction buys. That means I have a bunch of goodies to share with you today. A couple of weeks ago, I really got some good buys at one of the online auctions.

I bought this set of outdoor bar stools for $11. They are now on our deck with the high-top table we’ve had for a while. What a great deal.

The four folding chairs were $8. What a deal on those. I’ve already sold two of them at the shop and am in the process of painting the one on the left.

The pair of wrought iron swivel chairs were $30. More than the other things but still a good price. They are very heavy and just a bit rusty and discolored.

I bought the 3 mismatched bar stools for a grand total of $2. This online auction deal was great! We are using all of them in the workshop. I may paint one of them and sell it.

It was still full of first aid stuff.

Now for the finds from my favorite junk shop. I loved the shabby chic white distressed pot.

Do you like milk glass? I do but there is only so much junk you can display in your home.

There were a lot of pretty pieces at the shop.

I bought the vintage stopper bottle at the junk shop. I took it to my booth to sell and someone walked off with it. That happens a lot at the shop with small things, but keeping everything locked up behind glass doors is impossible. They were kind enough to leave the price tag behind….ugh.

I love this old handmade pottery piece.

I bought this at Goodwill with a project in mind but it didn’t work out so now I need another idea.

The candleholder will come in handy for some kind of project.

At one time I made a few projects with horseshoes but I don’t know what I would make with them now.

I got the beautiful Hawaii hanging at Goodwill. I love those colors. It was only $2.99.

The wood flower planter was too cute, and I’m not sure if I should paint it. What do you think?

The kitchen utensil came from the Goodwill too.

I don’t know why I like his little cat mug and topper so much. There is a chip on the top edge of the cup but I think it will make a cute little planter.

I plan to paint the drawer white and distress it. Maybe use it to organize magazines.

The last piece is a small table the JTS picked up at an auction for $5.
